In a statement released earlier today by WKU Athletics WKU students will now receive free admission to the match up between the Hilltoppers and Cardinals on November 29th in Nashville Tennessee.
Vouchers for the game will start to be disbursed tonight as WKU takes on Campbellsville at 7 PM. The first 100 students to claim this voucher will receive lower level priority seating at the arena for the Louisville game. Those who do not claim one of the first 100 vouchers can still receive a one through the WKU Ticket office. (Those will likely be upper level seating).
This idea was brought up earlier and credit to WKU Athletics for addressing potential issues.
Those who wish to purchase tickets can do so here.
After the second week of college football ESPN FPI has changed their numbers on who they believe will win each game. WKU is now favored in 5 of the remaining 10 games (UAB, ODU, Charlotte, FAU and MTSU). This jump is from the win last week so if WKU can win again this week you might see another game or 2 show WKU as a favorite. This is the only metric that we have to see where the computer believe the winner will be.
Week 3 vs Louisville is 22.5%
Week 4 vs UAB is 72.1%
Week 5 at ODU is 75.5%
Week 6 vs Army is 36.8%
Week 7 vs Charlotte is 73.0%
Week 8 at Marshall is 20.3%
Week 9 vs FAU is 55.4%
Week 10 at Arkansas is 26.1%
Week 11 Southern Miss is 30.1%
Week 12 vs MTSU is 51.9%

Both teams going into 2019 have something to prove. Both programs went under coaching changes in the off season. Former WKU Head Coach Mike Sanford was replaced by University of Tennessee OC Tyson Helton. Louisville replaces Bobby Petrino (Former WKU legend) after a 2-10 season with former Appalachian State HC Scott Satterfield.
Louisville is predicted to be at the very bottom of the ACC this season with Vegas having their 2019 win total set at (3.5). Western Kentucky’s line is set at (5).

On September 14 Western Kentucky and the University of Louisville will face off in Nashville at Nissan Stadium at 3 PM.
During ACC media days last week in Charlotte, NC, Satterfield made headlines with his comments regarding the current situation of the football program. Satterfield had this to say regarding his team-
“Some of the talent at App probably would start in front of these guys. And then the other way around with some. I just anticipated these guys would be a lot better, and it wasn’t the case.”
Last season the App State Mountaineers finished last season 11-2 with a bowl victory and going toe to toe in college park vs. Penn State (38-45 OT). App State was no walk in the park even though, being from the Sunbelt Conference.
You have to like hearing this being a fan of Western Kentucky.
WKU was close to defeating Louisville in 2018 under former Head Coach Mike Sanford. You have to like Western Kentucky’s chances under new Head Coach Tyson Helton in 2019.
